Transcript for Meteor Shower Thrills Stargazers
Now to the sight in the sky seen across the globe overnight. A rare show and we're told part two comes tonight. Reporter: Just look at the image captured on this man's roof, the meteor shower streaking across the sky above the trees there. Astronomers told us to expect the show, a quick flash across the sky. All of it space debris, not the man made debris but a dust trail from a comet intersecting the Earth's orbit made from a comet years ago, the 1700s and 1800s. We're just seeing it now. This image was taken at Joshua tree, California around midnight. Look this one, a single line in the darkness. This image captured in Barcelona Spain. Last night they were gathered in Sacramento, California with big wishes. It's an iffy proposition. We're hoping for the best. It's going to be exciting if it turns out. Reporter: It did. Astronomers say you'll get another chance tonight and it could be better than last night. We'll see later tonight. This was an actual photograph taken last night. If you capture it, send us a tweet.
